ALG Praises Ted Cruz
Sept. 24, 2013, Fairfax, VA—Americans for Limited Government President Nathan Mehrens today issued the following statement praising Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) for mounting a filibuster against funding Obamacare, and urged Americans to make their voices heard in this debate:
“One of Jimmy Stewart’s seminal roles was in Mr. Smith Goes to Washington where the title character that he plays takes on the entrenched Washington, D.C. establishment. Today, a real-life Mr. Smith Goes to Washington-moment is playing out on Capitol Hill as Sen. Ted Cruz fights both Harry Reid and the leaders of his own party to stop the implementation of Obamacare.
“No battle has ever been won by standing on the sidelines. It is time for Sen. Cruz’s Republican colleagues who have unanimously said they support overturning Obamacare to prove it by joining him in forcing the law to be defunded. It is not enough to vote against the law, while Harry Reid uses his Democrat majority to fund it. Now is the time for Senate Republicans to show that their campaign literature is more than just a shallow promise.
“It is time Republicans in the Senate to stand with Sen. Cruz, and it is time for the American people to make D.C. listen by calling their Senators today 202-224-3121.”
